Chronological List of Blog Entries



My journey of writing has taken me on a healing path I never imagined I would end up. I’m at a different place in my recovery from divorce and I want to give hope to those who are struggling. We can become reborn.


After six months since I’ve started blogging, I have more content than I can keep up with. It’s important for me to focus my energy on getting my messages out. Much of my current stories come from a different emotional place than where I had been.


I would like to start posting my blog entries more consistently. Unfortunately, some of these are four months old. Not wanting to hold my current content for many months, my posting will be a mix of old blogs and newer blogs.


I have created this page for those who are curious to follow my journey of healing chronologically. This is for people, like myself, who like to read a book straight through from page one till the end.
